Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
Not easy to find in Canada but widely available in the U.S.
Review posted here.

DermOrganic Leave-In Treatment with argan oil
I see this stuff at Winners & Homesense all the time at a great price.
Review posted here.
Note= not 100% argan oil, there are fillers such as silicones in it.

Mixed Chicks Gloss & Shining Hair Silk
A light weight gloss that doesn't way hair down. Applied wet holds soft waves or apply after blow dry to smooth straight hair. Smells great too!

Novex Bamboo Sprout Hair Care Treatment Cream
One of my travel buys from Brazil. There are many professional salon brand hair stores around Sao Paulo, Brazil and of course I love to browse. Found this brand by chance & was intrigued so bought the bamboo version (many different formulas). It's a deep moisturizing hair conditioner/mask, can be used as a deep conditioning treatment once a week. Smells awesome!!

Sexy Hair Silky Conditioner For Thick/Coarse Hair
Available at most professional haircare stores. Recommended & used by my hairdresser Eva. She's converted most of her clients in using this deep hydrating conditioner, smells like bananas. Love this stuff!

L'Oreal Inoa Color Care sulfate-free shampoo
Received this in a swag bag from the Contessa Hairdresser Awards, glad I did because I probable wouldn't have found this. Awesome sulfate-free shampoo that is moisturizing and leaves hair clean. Highly recommend it & available at salons & professional haircare stores.

When it comes to styling my hair I have to be the laziest beauty blogger. I have thick, coarse, hair that is dry and most of the time in a ponytail. As recommended by my hairdresser Eva, I switched to sulfate-free shampoos in hopes of managing my hair better. The result, I forced myself to style my hair more often and wear it either naturally wavy or blow dried straight.
Read all about sulfate-free here...an interview with hairdresser Eva Therese on why you should switch to sulfate-free.

What were your favourite haircare products from 2012?


  1. you can find Sexy Hair Silky shampoo/conditioner and other products at winners to at a great price, love this stuff!

  2. yes Winners is awesome for haircare products. I have seen Sexy Hair Silky but not the conditioner for coarse dry hair but will look out for it:) I purchase mine at Chatters, really good prices too.

  3. I've been using L'Oreal Inoa too and it's really awesome. It leaves my hair clean, soft, manageable and fragrant too. Anyway, I love your hair, it's simply gorgeous.
